FRIDAY FAVES-LOUISE BROOKS EDITION

Some years ago, I fell in love with Louise Brooks’ Connecticut home in Traditional Home magazine.  I’m such a sucker for delft tile like that which surrounds her fireplace.  I love the botanicals on each side of the fireplace and the chintz fabric on the chair.

FRUITY OUTDOOR TABLESCAPE

Outdoor Supper

I don’t know about the rest of you, but our temperatures this week are so much  more pleasant than what we are accustomed to in July.  So, when I got home from work, I decided that we’d sit on the back porch to enjoy one of our favorite summertime meals.

FRIDAY FAVES-VINTAGE CAMPER EDITION

 

DEAR LIZZIE

I’ve always loved tiny vintage campers, and I am amazed at the transformations that people make with them.  Isn’t all of this vintage red and white fun?

INDOOR DINING IN THE GARDEN

Garden Tablescape 1

It was too humid to eat outdoors, so I brought the garden indoors.  I’ve probably had this plaid tablecloth for 40 years!  (You know I never get rid of anything.)

THE RE-DO THAT MAY GET RE-DONE

AS Old White Painted Chair

I painted this chair and footstool about a month ago.  I didn’t think it looked very blog-worthy, and I decided it would have to be re-done – AGAIN!

FRIDAY FAVES-SLEEPING BEAUTIES EDITION

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL

I’ve always wanted to “do” a room in all one fabric.  I love this look, but when you are only willing to buy resale or on sale, you don’t usually find enough of one fabric to create this look.  This looks like it could be used for a sitting room when not in use as a bedroom.  I like that the beautiful  wood on the desk breaks up the pattern a little.

SUMMER TABLESCAPE STARING “B”!

Summer Tablescape 1

It’s official.  I’ve gone batty!  If you’re thinking the same thing, go ahead, say it.  No, you really don’t have to confirm it in your comment.  If you read my previous post, you know that I’m stuck on the letter “b”.  It started with birds, books, blooms, and blues in my previous post, and it has continued into my tablescape today with birds, blues, and browns.

SUMMER VIGNETTING, STARING THE LETTER “B”

Summer Vignette 2

In a previous post, we agreed that vignetting should be a word.  In this post, I’m sharing a “bignette”, not one of those delicious things you eat in New Orleans – A vignette inspired by the letter “b” (birds, books, blooms, and blues).  A spotted blue glass bird sits in front of a flower pot with blue blooms.

FRIDAY FAVES-VACATION HOME DREAMIN’

My sweetheart accuses me of wanting a vacation home just so I’ll have another place to play with furniture and vignette arrangements.  Please don’t tell him, but he’s probably close to the truth.  All pictures in this post are from Midwest Living.  You can click on any picture to go to their site.
